Growler from The Whip In in Austin.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is mainly full of pilsner and biscuit malt, with a little bit of grass. Hidden in the background is some fresh jalapeno notes.

The flavor is similar. I get a lot of toffee and biscuit notes, as well as some of the fresh, green jalapenos. There is also some light burn from the peppers which builds as you drink more of the beer. The pepper notes are present but are not too in your face. This is a fairly well done pepper beer.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Twisted X Brewing CO. "Fuego"
on tap at the brewery 6 November 2015
listed as 6.5% ABV with 21 IBUs

Notes: Clear gold body beneath a short head of white. Limited head retention and lacing. Golden malt and some pepper appear in the aroma, followed by a clear note of pepper in the flavor. It's not really hot but you do feel it. As such it will build on the palate and cut down on its drinkability, but given that it's a pepper beer I think we can throw multiple servings as a benchmark of "drinkability" out the window and simply go with "How much did you like the first one?". One of the better commercially available pepper beers I've had. Worth trying. Nicely done.

Nice change of pace. Subtle jalapeño after taste makes for a spicy reprieve from your usual beer.
